Does Blizzard even pay attention to petitions?

Not sure about that, but they do pay attention to complaints, especially if these complaints get huge community responses. At least that's how it is with StarCraft 2.

It will slow down as of now since the servers are fine again. Until next time they go bonkers again.

Well there was a 400 page long thread in their forums before they locked it... Blizzard really dropped the ball on Diablo 3.

Error 37... Funny thing is, they'd nut up and abandon blizzard like so many of them have claimed willing to do, the problem would solve itself and the others could play.

I signed it. Seems worthwhile, its just asking for an investigation to see how blizzard was acting. I get the impression they did not acquire enough infrastructure because they were being cheap.

I'm more than positive that Blizzard is working on getting the game more stable. This is not a problem that is unique to just Diablo 3, as anyone who ever plays an online game within its first week knows and sees happen.

"Severe" login issues? I've literally gotten error 37 twice and I've been playing basically D3 exclusively for the past two weeks.

I'm wondering if anyone does? I may be going out on a limb here but i'd say about 0.00004% of petitions are impactful in any way. Hopefully they fix the server issues.

Well on EU servers there are DAYS one just can not login, at all.

I will not sign the petition tho, only thing that matters is the money and I allready gave those to Blizz. They are aware of the issues. It's not a great launch, but it will settle down in some time.

I'm on the EU servers and have been playing there since launch.

I'm on EU and I haven't had that many problems, then again I haven't played that much lately because of work :). But I reached inferno today!

Petitions like this are proof they internet just enables anyone to do anything they want with little effort. Instead of doing something worthwhile, they make an online petition that literally took a couple of minutes to conjure up.

Yeah, Blizzard will take all that effort seriously.

EDIT: Also, Blizzard is a learning company. They push the limits of traditional systems forward and make things we use to today, normal. Give them some fucking time to do things that many companies refuse to do. Also, in proof that Blizzard does improve upon everything, here you go:

I feel so bad for having paid $60 for Diablo 3. The appeal lasted for one week and the technical issues on the the EU server was infuriating. From what I can teel, the issues has been going strong for the past 4-3 days.

How the F could I be so stupid to buy this on launch?

the last few days the servers have restarted or been down every night with little to no communication in the forums but hopefully in the future the servers are going to be up longer at a time. aside from that i havent had very many issues, can understand peoples issues though

Oh god, I hope that's optional. I don't care about custom games in the slightest and really don't need it taking up one of the two big buttons.
